A Black Grass Cider Tasting Experience
Sommelier Sean Crenny 

Frankly, you’d be hard-pressed trying to find two more knowledgeable individuals than the esteemed Dan Pucci and Craig Cavallo when it comes to the world of Cider. After becoming the founding beverage director at Wassail, New York City’s first cider bar, and restaurant, Dan has since traveled the country in continued pursuit of cider education, awareness, and research. Craig too has decades’ worth of expertise in this sphere, his work has been published in Condé Nast Traveler, GQ, New York magazine’s Grub Street, Thrillist, and Vice Munchies. And of course, a summer cider dinner in our own abode here at frame.

Sommelier Puccie and food journalist Cavallo. Together these two give us the in-cider scoop on creating a true cider experience with hand-selected Michigan Black Grass Cider’s by Monk Punk Cider Maker, Ian Radogost-Givens. Add in two cider glasses designed to maximize one’s ability to enjoy a sparkling cider by preserving the bubbles longer, and still giving all of those luscious aromas a place to congregate.

And Bam. Call us crazy. But there’s nothing we like more than a hand-crafted gift born out of true passion. Cheers!

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
